Alok Singhal Poems
How Far Have We Come?
How far have we come?
To not to look back on what we left behind
Happiness is judged by the bourses
Our fates are decided by the downturn or an upsurge
No time for us to stop and think
Coz we might lose so much in a blink
Simplicity is a thing of the past
When did we meet our brethren last?
Remember the last time we said a prayer?
When was the last feast with the mayor?
Ever wrote a letter to mom and dad lately?
Remember the last time you had a look inside?
To sum up the total of good and bad
Was it more that you gave than what you had? ...
The Battle In Vain
Mind fights to clear the fog,
Fog fights to envelope the mind,
Heart struggles to fight the pain,
Pain fights for the heart to concede,
The soul watches the game....so intently...passionately....still so impartial...
For the soul remains forever..undeterred...stirred sometime but unshaken....
whether the mind, the fog, the heart or the pain try in vain to win the game...
The battle is won not in the mind or the heart
but from end to start and eternity
